Buffalo Bills hire Kelly Skipper to coach running backs

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) New Buffalo Bills head coach Sean McDermott has hired Kelly Skipper to oversee LeSean McCoy and the NFL's top-ranked running attack.

Skipper takes over as Buffalo's running backs coach after spending the previous two seasons holding the same job with the Jacksonville Jaguars. He also spent eight seasons as an assistant in Oakland following a nine-year stint at the college level split between UCLA and Washington State.

Skipper will work with Juan Castillo, who was hired last week to serve as offensive line coach and run-game coordinator.
